Portsmouth, New Hampshire is a Bachelorette Party Destination

I was having lunch at the Gaslight in Portsmouth last summer and there were three different bachelorette parties outside enjoying lunch at the same time.

I picked the one that looked the most fun, and sent them a round of Fireball shots. I rarely get to be that cool, but watching them made me nostalgic of my own bachelorette party and I wanted them to have as much fun as I did.

There is a big misconception that all bachelorette parties must entail matching outfits, straws that resemble a part of the male anatomy, and wild nights out. And don't get me wrong, some do! But even if you aren't a huge partier, a bachelorette celebration is a must. Every bride-to-be deserves a night or weekend with her closest gal pals to bid farewell to her single days.
